“My darling husband passed away peacefully early this morning,” began Elizabeth Hines.

“I was at his bedside, holding his hand as I played his favorite Christmas songs for him,” shared Hines.

“He’s been singing Christmas songs the past few weeks and I continued to play Christmas songs while he’s been in ICU on a ventilator this past week,” she continued.

“He and I both believed he would overcome his health setbacks and return to the rehabilitation center and eventually home.”

Adding, “Unfortunately, his lung disease, Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD), is unpredictable and aggressive; each infection weakened and damaged his lungs.”

Hines added, “He fought everyday. He was so strong and brave, never complained.”

Paul McCartney paid tribute to Laine’s talent and humor, extending condolences to his family.

“Denny was a great talent with a fine sense of humour and was always ready to help other people,” wrote Paul McCartney.

“He will be missed by all his fans and remembered with great fondness by his friends. I send my condolences and best wishes to his wife, Elizabeth and family,” continued the Beatles’ member.

“Peace and love Denny. It was a pleasure to know you. We are all going to miss you,” concluded McCartney.

Laine’s musical career extended beyond his time with Wings, including stints with other bands and a solo career.

He was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame as a member of the Moody Blues in 2018.

Denny Laine, co-founder of Wings with Paul McCartney, died Tuesday after battling lung disease, his wife, Elizabeth Hines, confirmed to Fox News Digital. He was 79.

Laine was involved in the formation of two of the biggest rock bands of all time — The Moody Blues and McCartney’s Wings.
